We’ve just entered February, and although short in days, it is packed with activities. We have businesses in the community, such as Powerade and Ideal Market, who are impressed with our athletics and wish to donate to bolster our program. Those two businesses awarded us $4,500 in total and we are thankful for their support.
We were delighted to learn that Grace King High School’s campus was selected to play host to Dr. Brumley’s Strategic Plan unveiling. Our students were enthusiastically involved and we appreciated the chance to highlight our commitment to our students and their diverse needs.
You will soon see members of our performance groups out on the upcoming Mardi Gras parade routes. Some of you may have heard the band as they practiced during the afternoons. Hearing them play has most certainly put me in the mood for some Carnival fun and king cake.
We appreciate all who have scheduled the various Parent Informational Nights into their calendars. Our counselors are looking forward to the 2019-2020 academic year while keeping an eye on our students’ present achievements. That includes celebrating the newest members of our ACT 21+ and 30+ Club. We want to build on our success, and we are going to begin our ACT Question of the Day in the two weeks leading up to our school exam on March 12, 2019.
No February would be complete without acknowledgement and appreciation of the history makers of Black History Month. Students have shared Moments in Black History each morning during our daily announcements and we’re looking forward to the Black History Program.
With Fighting Irish Love,
Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton
